It's official...after a marathon weekend of The Office, I am an official convert. I'm not sure what took us so long to jump on the bandwagon, but there is no going back now. A couple of weeks ago, we borrowed Season 1 from the library because frankly there wasn't much else available that day. We had watched bits of maybe two episodes in the past and frankly just didn't see what all the talk was about. It was sort of like watching a documentary of inside jokes and we just weren't the cool kids.

Anyway, so we popped the DVD in and committed ourselves to watching a few episodes without any judgement. We liked the first one and then the next...and then of course went into a panic when we realized there were only six episodes in Season 1. (Mad dash back to the library where I thankfully found Season 2.) I would say we were hooked at the end of the first season, but down right obsessed by the end of Season 2.

We finished Season 2 in about a week....I know what you are thinking...total lack of commitment... A few days into watching the second season, I requested Season 3 from our library....however, still no word when we were done on Friday night. So, Saturday morning I checked all of the libraries in our network and we hopped in the Jeep and headed to Sudbury first thing. We headed straight for the DVDs,.. quickly scanned the shelf...It wasn't there! Just then, Jason and I both eye a boy of about 10 or 11 with OUR DVD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am seriously ashamed to say that I considered bribing the boy. He could not possibly have NEEDED that DVD as much as I did. So, back to the computer...one copy left in our library network about a half an hour away in Acton.

So, back to the Jeep and back on the road...thank you GPS...We made a dash into the library and went straight for the DVD section...it wasn't there! Jason was able to compose himself enough to ask the librarian for help and she directed us to the rental section of more popular DVDs, so Jason, Nikolai and I ran back down the stairs (Nikolai was completely enjoying the hunt...even though he had no real idea what we were doing)...and there it was. I'm quite sure the box glowed as we approached and I snatched it up in my greedy, desperate little hands. We devoured Season 3 in just a weekend...I seriously need to get back to work...
